 Most importantly, Peters agreed to the terms of the lawsuit settlement preventing him from public fundraising (e.g., Kickstarter or Indiegogo) to pay for the Axanar shorts. That severely constrains Axanar's funding options. It's misleading to portray the shorts' funding prospects as being similar to //Prelude//'s. Without crowdfunding, only private appeals are possible, limiting the viral campaign that previously proved so successful for Axanar. Moreover, in its 2017 Indiegogo campaign Peters sought more than $200,000 to save his ill-fated California studio, counting on his vaunted 15,000 supporters to come to his rescue. Barely more than 300 donated just $22,020, casting the loyalty of those 15,000 into doubt. Most importantly, Peters agreed to the terms of the lawsuit settlement preventing him from public fundraising (e.g., Kickstarter or Indiegogo) to pay for the Axanar shorts.

 <wrap em>DUBIOUS</wrap> **Returning Actors**. To keep fans’ interest in Axanar alive, Peters had previously claimed the Star Trek alumni actors who appeared in //Prelude// would return, pointing especially to Gary Graham and J.G. Hertzler. The terms of the lawsuit's settlement allow the actors to appear in the short films. However, without a script, a budget, funding and shooting schedule none has made a firm commitment. Graham, in fact, has [[prelude_actors_bloopers#actors_future_with_axanar|distanced himself]] from the project. Kate Vernon has refused to confirm she remains attached to the project. <wrap em>DUBIOUS</wrap> **Returning Actors**.
